Plug and Play Digital Sound Decoder for KATO HO Diesels
The TSU-KT1000 Digital Sound Decoder is here and ready to provide you with the best Digital Sound for your KATO HO diesel models. This specially designed decoder allows even the most timid to easily install pure 16-bit digital sound in KATO HO diesel models. Nothing is sacrificed; all the features that you’ve come to expect from any SoundTraxx Tsunami Digital Sound Decoder are included. These Digital Sound Decoders are designed to replace the light board that comes in recent production KATO HO Diesel engines. Since Tsunami comes with 16 airhorns appropriate to the prototype, no special software or programmer is necessary to achieve the absolute best sound available!
Tsunami's sound features are matched only by its superior motor control and brilliant lighting effects, making it unsurpassed in its technological capabilities. A 16-bit Digital Signal Processor provides the necessary horsepower Tsunami needs to support more functions, sound effects and advanced motor control than ever before!
Because of the design and placement of the lights in these models, each decoder is manufactured to suit a particular model rather than prototype. For example, to equip an SD-70, rather than purchasing a model EMD 3rd Generation, you will purchase a TSU-KT1000 for KATO SD-70, which includes the correctly mounted lights and the sounds for an SD-70 (EMD 3rd Generation).
BIG Sound Features!
Tsunami Diesel decoders can produce over 14 sound effects, including engine startup and shutdown, engine prime mover through all eight notches, bell, airhorn, air compressor, dynamic brakes, radiator fans, brake squeal and more.
Tsunami goes several steps beyond ordinary sound generators. Tsunami is so powerful that it comes with its own special effects processors - the Equalizer, Sound Mixer and Reverb. It's like having a complete sound studio at your fingertips! The TSU-KT1000 is available in a variety of prime movers and physical board layouts to suit your KATO diesel model!
Brilliant Lighting Effects!
Tsunami TSU-KT1000 includes two board-mounted golden LEDs for your headlight and backup light, with two additional outputs available to use for other lighting features. The hardware is already on the circuit board for use with LEDs, so there is no need for external resistors or other electronics.
Advanced Motor Control
SoundTraxx has designed our special Hyperdrive™ technology into the decoder, resulting in smooth and precise locomotive operation. Hyperdrive includes many features such as High Resolution Speed Steps, High Frequency PWM Drive and Torque Control, all designed to improve the running characteristics of your locomotive.
With the press of a key on your DCC controller, blow horns, ring the bell and watch the headlight brighten as the power builds up. The more functions your controller has, the more fun you'll have!
